Replanting Block One

By Walt Schlotfeldt

During the COVID-19 Shelter-in-Place order, we watched Block 1 (3.9 acres) being prepared for replanting. This block was 28 years old and ready for an upgrade.

Take a look at what this makeover involves, from vine removal to replanting.

Ironically, at the same time our Block One transformation was taking place, the Pacific Gas & Electric folks were also here during this time cutting a 100-foot fire break under their high voltage power lines that dissect our ranch.
